ebook reader / netbook tablet recommendations wanted
I've just bought a Sony PRS-505 to explore the ereader market. However, what I really want is a device like the iRex DR1000SW (unavailable). I also seem to notice a large number of complaints about the DR series, so I think I'll pass. But... I must admit, the DR1000SW comes the closest to exactly what I want right now.
Here are my needs: It should provide full page PDF viewing while taking touch and pen input for annotations. I principally need it to manipulate technical and academic documents - published papers - in PDF form. I'll gladly pay more than $1000 if this device cuts out the many pounds of books and printed papers I carry in my shoulder bag daily.
A standard laptop with keyboard won't do it because it doesn't show a page in standard A4/A5 format. epaper is nice, but honestly what I need is the format of a 10" slate - so LCD solutions are fine by me as well. Any suggestions?
